All of our on-campus students are supported by professional residential life and housing staff who have been trained to both assist students individually and to develop communities where safety, respect for others, and positive living/learning environments are the top priorities. Our office is dedicated to providing students with a safe, clean, comfortable residential community that cultivates civility and social responsibility while supporting the academic mission of the College (see Keene State College’s Mission & Values statement).
Being a residential college, Keene State emphasizes the educational value of living with people who may be different from one another. This includes a commitment to respecting diversity in others and being able to expect the same in return.
Without a doubt, living in a residence hall will provide you with the best opportunity to take advantage of the campus environment to its fullest extent. We’re sure you’ll find that with our many living options there’s something for everyone - especially since at no other time in your life will you have the chance to live with and learn from such a diverse group of your peers!
